In the Beginning
The early chapters of Genesis are foundational to the Christian faith setting out much of how we are called to understand the world in which we live. Its two accounts of creation are especially important in setting out God’s intentions for the world which were not swept aside once sin entered it through disobedience of human beings. As such, they form an important corrective to any tendency within Christianity to ‘super-spiritualise’ our faith by sitting lightly to creation. During this series we will look at the first five chapters of Genesis and consider what they are seeking to teach us about the nature of the world – both in God’s original creation and after the arrival of sin caused it to go so badly wrong.
